People call us asking if we can “carbon date” the documents, or if we can detect variances in the actual signatures to prove the forgery. This is all unneccesary. The fact is, if the document has been altered with the use of a computer program, we can detect and reverse engineer the process.
We’ve actually had a client come to use with an “expert” document examiner’s opinion (an expert they themselves hired through counsel) stating that the note was actually the “original.” After an examination by Dr. Kelley, the document was an blatant computer generated forgery. This technology will stump the old fashioned “handwriting / document” examiner. This is because most are not adequately trained in computer science and these new technologies.
